    RIP Rickie. Thoughts and prayers are with the family. The past several years have not been easy for you and Linda with all the health problems but you made the best of it. Now you can rest in peace no longer in pain. Wish I could be there but you and Linda and family will be in my thoughts and prayers.

    I am so sorry to hear of the families loss. I met Mr. Averette at Sheila and Bobby’s wedding. Both himself and Mrs. Averette were such a joy to speak with. You were so happy to see Bobby marry his soulmate. You and the family are in my thoughts and prayers. I prayed for God to wrap his arms around you at this time. Sheila and Bobby if you need anything Sheila can reach me.
